Scrubs QD LLC in Hays is closing Friday, but customers can find their favorite brands next door at Goodwin Sporting Goods.

Shane Lynch, owner of Scrubs, said the move reduces overhead and allows him to continue selling the products below the suggested retail price. The store's top brands will be consolidated at Goodwin's, where Lynch also works.

"There's still going to be somewhere for people to buy scrubs," he said.

Goodwin will be renovated during the next few months to free up space for more products.

Megan Colson, executive director of Downtown Hays Development Corp., said the shopping options still will be available downtown.

"We will be sad to see the Scrubs QD store closing, but we are looking forward to see them consolidate with Goodwins and continue to offer great products to the medical community," she said.

There are no other employees affected by Scrubs' closure.
